I think it’s so cool that so many of the stars that we can see may not even be there anymore. As the article states, since Betelgeuse is 642 light years from us, it could have done its supernova show that long ago and we would still be seeing it as “normal” in the sky.

That’s super wild.

Also, “The Armpit of Orion” would be a fantastic metal band name.
